What customers say about "Key Specs"
The North Face Jester (T0CHJ4)
  • I like the way its light weight and fits all my things. For work,school or just on the go this is an extremely comfortable nice compact backpack.
  • It’s very comfortable to wear and I feel like the price was reasonable! Fits all my books, planner and more.
  • It’s lightweight even with my laptops, tablet, notepads, binder, power cables and mouse. It’s hardy and withstands bouncing around the back of my vehicle.
  • The straps are very comfortable and the chest strap is removable if you don't like it. I like the amount of compartments in the front and the padded laptop sleeve.
  • Conforms to my back & shoulders & really is made for a women's frame. The bag itself is lightweight, has the perfect amount of pockets, great for urban living.
  • I have broad shoulders and the straps don’t feel comfortable. The stiff back piece feels uncomfortable.
The North Face Borealis TNF Black, One Size
  • I love this bag. It's extremely comfortable and spacious and holds everything we need for traveling and work.
  • It fits under an airline seat so you don't have to fight for overhead baggage space with the steamer trunk packers. I would definitely recommend this pack.
  • Looks sharp and is lightweight and easy to carry and maneuver in and out car and locker, yet has plenty of room.
  • Extremely light and comfortable. I have a heavy duty laptop that fits perfectly in there and it doesn't feel too heavy!
  • It sits comfortably on my shoulders and even with my laptop and several days of clothing in it, I felt no discomfort after carrying it all day.
  • I would not call this lightweight but its a normal weight for features.

What customers say about "Features"
The North Face Jester (T0CHJ4)
  • Contigo water bottle fits nicely in the exterior side pocket. The color is even more stylish and vibrant in person than online photo. I like it!
  • It's well constructed & zippers are sturdy. Great size - it holds a lot but isn't bulky. Well organized in its design. Highly recommend this backpack!
  • This bookbag can hold a lot of items especially my laptop which I bring everywhere. The laptop compartment is so convenient and safe I would recommend this book bag!
  • Lots of room in the pockets, many compartments inside of them for electronics, pens, etc. Also lots of places perfect for gator clips if needing to carry larger equipment like a helmet for work.
  • This item is good for daily using and traveling. It's good in the large capacity, shape design and the high quality.
  • The issue lack of flat bottom, so pack cannot not stand upright when packed with items.
The North Face Borealis TNF Black, One Size
  • Strong backpack with enough capacity for short travels, specially if you are practical organizing your gear. At the same time, beautiful, or that is what i get to hear normally.
  • Excellent built quality. Having lots of pockets for all my smaller materials/belongings is also a great feature. The straps have a sturdy rugged built and they're comfortable.
  • The laptop pouch is perfect for my laptop and the straps tighten up well and sit nicely on my shoulders. I was happy to see that the lap strap was removable as well.
  • It has plenty of room and I enjoy the smaller middle pocket because it is the perfect place for all your pens, notepads, wallets, smaller items, etc.
  • Great backpack for the price! The quality is great. The tactile and rugged zippers, pouches, straps, and the entire bag itself is outstanding.
  • The pockets are way too deep, which makes it hard to find what I'm looking for quickly and they are not wide enough, so I can't fit enough things in it.
